We stayed here for two nights. It's a lovely guest house with amazing views out to sea. Harald couldn't have been more helpful and the rooms are spacious and comfortable.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had the upper room with great sea views and it's own balcony. There is a wide choice for breakfast which was excellent. There is private secure parking. The Guest House is about 400 metres walk from the main centre of Hermanus so easy to walk in and there's plenty of parking in town...

Me and my wife had a great time here. Nice and cozy place. The host was very kind and breakfast good. Only one thing is that the rooms facing the main road may be little noisy from the cars passing by. Better to have a back room. But the views are amazing from the front rooms.

“We had the top room and front ground floor room both with amazing sea views.”

“We recommend the upstairs room as it has a great view of the sea and has it's own balcony. There is a spiral staircase to the room so may not be suitable for those who struggle with staircases.”
